So for today will mention this one and next week the other application that will at least give me a chance to record with it beforehand, otherwise I will write about it anyway... blah blah.
Guitarcraft is not like any other guitar application and the first thing to note is that it is not meant to be playing in real time but it is a combination of sequencing notes and then tapping the rhythm and it will quantize it for you so it sounds tight but still getting the groove right. For me the sound of the guitar is very good even though you do not have too many sound shaping options. There is only two amplifier settings, one more dry and one with distortion. But I do love the dry setting and if you are using it to make some guitar riffs you can always use the effects in the program you are using the exported wav file in or actually use real guitar pedals in between the device and what you use for recording if you have something to record into.
But to be fair even if it is limited it does come with some more parameters like bending, vibrato parameters, reverb and some other functions which can add some more flavour to the sound directly in the app outside of the two amplifier settings.
I see it as having a good guitar that can be used as a sample instrument but does not sound sampled and is flexible enough to get good results from.
It has flaws, feels slightly buggy and the workflow could be easier but with some effort and if you have desire for some good guitar tones in your music or are a guitar player looking for riffs while being away from your guitar it is good. Or for me that is a guitar player but do not have an electric guitar and do not really like playing electric guitar it is a good thing to have.
There is a demo to try so you can see if it is for you as many will think that it is too limited but if there is one guitar app that I would use recorded in my music this is the one.
Maybe even preferably to many sample instruments of guitar made for DAW's and the computer as you have Guitarcrafts hands on system for making the riffs groove that will make it easier to humanize with than with a sequencer or recording with a piano keyboard.
(Of course if it is a acoustic guitar I will just record it myself...)
Here is the Playstore video explaining the app...
For the most part they have used reverb on the guitar making it a small disservice as the sound gets covered up and for me it is better to use it without effects and then add effects afterwards if you want to use it as a part of another composition.
